Something I always would like to build 2 PC's in one case. The 240GB SSD goes with the streaming only PC, the gaming PC gets the rest of the drives. 500GB m.2 for OS and programs, 1TB SSD for games 3 TB hard drive for the rest..

Actually think I went a bit over budget. Might need a couple fan splinter cables their like 4 bucks each.

To get back in budget you could drop down to a 2070 Super video card my 1070 runs a 1440p monitor just fine and the 2070 super is a much better card than that.

Look at the 4K benchmarks really no difference because it gets limited by the video card. You might of read my post wrong I never said buy a new video card I said the 8700K was a decent upgrade and a 9900K was not worth the price.

You can always find a couple of exceptions using different hardware. Just so you know I can make a video of a GTX 980 beating a 2080ti if I wish.

The 8700K is a good upgrade about toe to toe with the 9700K the 9900K might be a better upgrade but the cost is retarded and for 4K gaming not really going to show that much improvement since the video card is more important than the CPU as long as you have a fairly good one.

If that doesn't work you probably need to update the motherboard BIOS to support that processor.

Their no graphics on the motherboard so you must use a video card.

First sorry you bought that video card bad buy for a gaming PC.

Logicalincrements is a fairly bad site since it ups the motherboard, case, drive prices as it goes up in price. The CPU and GPU gives the performance don't matter if your using a 100 buck motherboard or a 250 buck.

The way windows uses the cores of the 3XXX processors I would take a very small performance loss and up the cores to the 2700X since your streaming game play.

From what I have heard for VR gaming some of the upcoming games are going to be borderline on just 16GB of memory so I would go ahead and get 32GB now and be set.

22 bucks more, CPU with more cores, 16GB more memory. Could use the stock cooler and get close to the same performance their decent and have RGB.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Raid SSD"

  • 2 days ago

Raid 0 would in theory (got to love those 2 words) give you 2X the speed and 2TB of storage it works like writes a 0 to first drive then 0 to 2nd drive back and forth. (their not really any real world advantage in speed other than just running benchmarks and if one drive dies you lose all your data.) this was useful when all they were was 7200RPM or 10000RPM hard drives this did show a speed increase.

Raid 1 you would have 1tb of storage and it writes to both drives at the same time so if 1 drive dies you still have all your data. Not really needed since anything you can't lose/replace that is on your drive should be backed up to another drive anyhow.

Yes leave it alone it's already a overclocked model card they usually have very little left and show no real gains in FPS. You can rune your card to gain a few FPS it's just not worth it.

I overclock processors but leave the video cards alone.

Why did you put the core voltage to max?

Undo everything you did.

Use MSI afterburner set a custom fan curve 2 points will do 40C=20% and 70C= 100%.

Then check the box to make it active when you start the PC and leave the card alone.

Is that what you already have?

If you already have what is listed get this you might need a BIOS update to use the processor. Add the extra fan to the side of the case blowing in.

Then sell your processor and video card and buy another SSD 500GB area to have more room for games.

Depends on what the PC will be used for most of it looks like overkill if you just need 16GB of memory, and the 1K motherboard is really bad.

1600 watt PSU?

If gaming it depends on the monitor as to what video card to buy in general the 2080ti is not worth the price increase over the 2080 super for the little extra performance.
